Childnet Film Competition 2013

The Childnet Film Competition 2013 is now open! We are hoping to build on last year's success and see another batch of fantastic short films promoting the positive uses of the internet.

Positive and inspiring use of the internet is at the heart of our Film Competition 2013. Childnet is inviting all schools and youth organisations in the UK to enter our challenge. Two separate projects are in place for primary and secondary aged children. This year the themes will revisit the key messages from Safer Internet Day 2013.

Primary aged entrants: Will be challenged to create a 60 second film to tell us why ‘The internet is great, when you respect your mates’. 


Secondary aged entrants: Will be asked to create a 2 minute film in response to the theme ‘How do you connect with respect?’

If you would like to register a group of young people for the challenge please do so at film@childnet.com

All shortlisted finalists will then be invited to a private screening of their film in front of our judging panel at the BFI in Central London, where they will be awarded some fantastic prizes for their school/youth group!

For your information the dates for the competition are as follows;

Competition opens: Monday 25th February 2013

Competition closes: Friday 21st June 2013 @5pm

Finalists notified: Monday 1st July 2013

Screening & finalist event at the BFI: Monday 15th July 2013

If you think that you could assist in the promotion of our film competition with schools and young people we would really appreciate it! It would be fantastic if you could share the news of our Film Competition on your website or social networking pages, or if we could be mentioned in any newsletters and mailing lists.

Any advice and support that you could offer for this project would be greatly appreciated. I would be delighted to give you more information about our approach to engaging children and young people in digital citizenship.
